This week’s accumulator is £10 @7/1
• CHELSEA 4/7 (Away v Sheffield United. Saturday KO 17:30)
• ROMA 1/2 (Away v Brescia. Saturday KO 18:30)
• MANCHESTER CITY 3/10 (Away v Brighton. Saturday KO 20:00)
• ATLETICO MADRID 40/85 (Home v Real Betis. Saturday KO 21:00)
• LEICESTER CITY 4/6 (Away v Bournemouth. Sunday KO 19:00)
OVERVIEW: Manchester City’s inability to put the ball in the net cost us the acca last time out. 1 team yet again.
Moving on to this week, I’ve been given a free hit. BetBull have offered FULL ACCA INSURANCE so any failure will be refunded as a free bet. With this in mind I’ve gone slightly riskier on the selections because, well, why not. Still a group of 5 favourites, albeit not as strong with 4 matches away from home. What this does give us though, is an increased return for 1 less selection, here goes.
PICKS: Chelsea are in fine fettle, they have won 8 of their last 9 games and I fancy them to increase that run at Shef. United. The home side have had a brilliant season themselves but I think in form Willian, Pulisic and co will have too much in this one.
What a scratchy season it’s been for AS Roma. With Champions League qualification hopes all but gone, they’ll be looking to cling onto their Europa spot with a win away at Struggling Brescia. And that’s the reason I’ve still gone with the away side here, Brescia have only won once in 16 games and look destined for relegation. Roma at 1/2 offers good value here.
Yep, I’ve gone Man City again despite last week’s let down. Opponents Brighton have failed to win in 7 of their previous 8 home matches and they’ve conceded 3 goals in their last 2, perfectly open for Pep’s city. AWAY WIN.
Over in Spain, Atleti are doing what they do and not losing. Unbeaten in 13 La Liga matches, they are still the best of the rest and look nailed on for a Champions League place. Visitors Real Betis, on the other hand, are winless in 10 away matches in the league and have averaged less than a goal a game in that run. Not ideal when coming up against one of the meanest defences in Europe. 2-0 ATLETICO.
I’m hoping we are looking at a good cash out number by the time Leicester travel to Bournemouth on Sunday night. After a post lockdown blip, the foxes appear to be back on track whilst Bournemouth have been dreadful. No win in 9 Premier League games for them and adrift in the bottom 3. Leicester great odds at 4/6 to WRAP UP THE ACCA.
